Re: What are you reading?

Lawrence Wright's God Save Texas. So far it is interesting, but it is marred by his (relatively subdued) Texas chauvinism and boosterism (which he probably wouldn't recognize as such).

Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

Upgrade is fun. It is a little darker than the trailers suggest, and it could have had something important to the plot better foreshadowed. It's only 90 minutes which is nice nowadays.

Black Klansman looks fucking awesome.

Re: Orange is the new President

I mean there is no time it isn't appropriate to call Ivanka Trump a cunt, though there are times it is more appropriate (to her face).

I wonder if people are upset because they think "feckless" is related to "fuck."

Samantha Bee is in trouble for calling Ivanka Trump a cunt. Samantha Bee is generally not funny, but Ivanka Trump is a cunt.

Re: What are you reading?

I wonder what the first story/novel is in Western lit that involves the majority of the story being a fantasy that takes place while the protagonist is dead/dying. "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" is from 1890, which seems late for such a common plot device to enter circulation. TV tropes doesn'...

I just want to point out how much Chicago sucks based on their "pizza" and the fact that they are particular about hot dogs. Even good hot dogs are inferior sausages. Every place between the Rhine and the Black Sea does vastly superior sausages on a roll.
